party, we are change, tyranny response team, and americans for a free republic. and these anti-government patriot groups have skyrocketed a number during president obama's time in office. there were only 149 groups in 2008. in 2012 there's over 1300. look at the chart there. yesterday the southern poverty law center sent a letter to homeland security secretary janet napolitano warning more growth could happen. and brian levin is with the study for hate and extremism. gentlemen, i want you to start tonight -- it's your report, mark, so lead the way here. let me ask you this. i'm going to get into this in my close tonight on the show. i look at obama as a perfect american. i don't mean politically. we can agree left and right. you can argue about the drones, fiscal policy and all that stuff. but as a citizen. he went to school, never broke a law, raised a wonderful family, good husband, good family. i don't think he's got a speeding ticket. the guy does everything right. and he's really been pretty moderate on guns until the horror of newtown. i don't know what they're so afraid
changing loopholes and make it revenue-neutral is some tax component to actually raise money against the deficit part of any deal that has to come out of all these talks? >> i mean, that is -- that's certainly the -- that's certainly the president's view, and that we had hoped that congress would have acted in the last month to pass, you know -- the president has put a balanced package on the table that is a combination of increasing revenues, of closing loopholes, as well as spending cuts, and, you know, the hope was that we would be able to pass that and have the revenues as part of that go for deficit reduction. now, you know, speaker boehner has -- is for tax reform. he has a view that we shouldn't use that money for deficit reduction, but what the president finds encouraging is that, you know, we're in the same universe in terms of the types of -- the types of reform that we think needs to happen. the president has been willing to join entitlement reform. we're not there yet, and the president had a really good dinner yesterday. there's a lot of differences, but some common grou
the administration is the fact that the plans that they put forward, including some reform changes like chain cpi and social security, medicare different payments in terms of -- no one knows about them, and ezra cline had a good post where he talked to an unnamed republican congressman about chain c.p.i., and the congressman said something like if only they would go there, we could get a deal. they went there. you know, it's funny in one respect, but it's also sort of sad and problematic in another that if you have to actually just start with educating them about what's in the proposal, then the end game, which is the actual deal making is far off, and i guess sea bass will help, but it will take a lot of sea bass. >> a lot of chilean sea bass. >> i think everybody has seen that bill o'reilly tape where he says you're lying about what the president has on offer, and really there is a sense that no matter what president obama puts on the table, it won't be enough. even if it's precisely the things that republicans are calling for. >> it won't be enough or won't be believed that he is actually putt
yorker" last summer, but i don't think the situation has changed, the war in afghanistan haas come to this, the u.s. is leaving, mission not accomplished. by the end of 2014 when the last americans are due to stop fighting, the taliban will not be defeated. a western-style democracy will not be in place. the economy will not be self-sustaining and it's a good bet in some remote valley, even al qaeda will be carrying on. ha do you make of that? >> and first, it's not like the costs are even going to end once the conflict ends. the va just put out a report saying they estimate around 20 veterans a day commit suicide. even when the fighting ends for the people overseas fighting, the war just begins for a lot of them when they come back home. in addition to that, it does come down to -- and this is a very important point about, who is the partner we're working with on this the only people to come out faster to condemn president karzai's comments were the taliban who came out and said these are ridiculous comments, we're not courting the americans. so karzai is ending up having two very
care takes $716 billion. >> changing the program forever. the romney/ryan plan will restore medicare funding and protect and strengthen the program for the next generation. >> well, they are not restoring those cuts. ryan and house republicans are matching forward as if the 2012 election didn't happen. his budget is a lot like his last two and doesn't seem to offer much room for compromise it tries to repeat affordable care act. it transz sitions medicare to a voucher or support program by 2024. ryan does eliminate tax loopholes and deductions but does not use those revenues to pay down the debt. instead, consolidating the tax coated into two tax brackets, 10% and 25%. his budget pushes approval of the keystone pipeline, raises the question as senate democrats prepare their own budget and president obama continues his charm offensive is ripe capable of cutting a deal, is this budget intended to start the covering? perhaps not. perhaps this is just for base republicans. ryan himself voted against simpson boles, hasn't reached across the other side when it comes to budget negotiation,
not? >> we're not going to refight the past. law is law. we know that that's not going to change. especially with respect to these issues. >> the past is the past. the law is the law. except when it comes to the affordable care act because much of mr. ryan's pie in the sky proposal is based squarely, get this, on the repeal of obama care. >> we don't like this law. this is why we're proposing to repeal this law in our budget. more importantly, we believe that this law is going to collapse under its own weight. this, to us, is something we're not going to give up on because we're not going to give up on destroying the health care system for the american people. >> oh, dear. it seems mr. ryan may have misspoke or did he? after all, the ryan budget would slash about 70% of its spending cuts from health programs including defunding the affordable care act while also taking advantage of the savings that it created. senate majority leader harry reid has a word for that. >> congressman ryan has held out to be this person who understands things so well. what he understands is gimmickry.
highlighted just how difficult it will be to change the fundamentals or really change anything at all. >> we're not here to rebrand a party, we're here to rebuild a country. we're not here to dedicate ourselves to new talking points coming from d.c. we're not here to put a fresh coat of rhetorical paint on our party. >> the biggest take-away from conferences? conservatives are in the middle of a messy brawl. the kind of knock-down, drag-out free for all where sarah palin jumps off her stool to throw punches at karl rove. >> the last thing we need is washington, d.c. vetting our candidates. the architects can head on back to -- >> they can head on back to the lone star state and put their name on a ballot. >> i would say if i did run for office and win, i would serve out my term. i wouldn't leave office mid-term. >> the kind of fracas that sees ted cruz take on john mccain. >> we had an eminent member of the republican party describe me as whacko bird. if standing for the constitution makes me a whacko bird, then count me a proud whacko bird. >> the kind of intraparty donnybrook featuring ann

really don't like each other. could this be an opportunity to change that or at least move it in the other direction? >> listen, chris, we have watched this dysfunctional relationship ever since the president was elected. there's no doubt that netanyahu preferred romney over obama in the last election. but the fact of the matter is, the president understands as well as netanyahu that the two of them are facing what essentially is israel's greatest peril in the next year, and that is iran's potential nuclear weaponization. and both countries are tied at the hip inso far as what happens to iran. if iran decides to proceed, well, both israel and the united states might find themselves in a conflict against iran. and so there's got to be a better relationship between these two men. not only with respect to iran, but also with respect to israel's growing challenges on its borders, particularly in lebanon with hezbollah in the south with gaza and egypt and, of course, with syria. the last thing that the united states wants is for netanyahu and the israeli people the belief that t
